The land votes for Trump

The logic of some Trump voters is outrageous. A letter to the editor of the local paper today claimed that Trump carried more counties in the US than Clinton did. Of course, those counties contained fewer people and votes than the counties that Clinton carried. That Trump supporter certainly does not accept the concept of one person/one vote. He is asserting that his vote is somehow more valuable than the votes of some other voters who may live in a large city.

To take that logic to a ridiculous extreme. Suppose everyone in the US were crowded to together in one corner of the country and just one voter lived alone somewhere else. That one voter’s vote would outweigh everyone else’s. Totally illogical.
